Walkthrough: MyVacation

6 years ago

Edit: I have reformatted the walkthrough to make it easier to read!

For those of you that are looking for a good myVacation walkthrough, here is my own, created by the creator of myVacation! The walkthrough is designed if you do not use the Tiki Cheat mode; however, you can beat the game using the tiki cheat mode and this walkthrough as well. 

-MyVacation Walkthrough-

1. Getting Your Room
One of the first things you should do before doing anything in this game is buying your first room.
Navigate to the main lobby and go to the front desk. Tell them "I would like to Buy/Upgrade my room" Since you only have enough money for the Big Basic, tell them you want that. 
Take the key card and put it in your inventory. 
Use your map and go to the Rooms Area. 
The Big Basic menu option will be highlighted, allowing you to go in there. (Rooms: Hotel rooms will let you raise all your stats. Make sure your stats do not reach 0, otherwise you may have to pay penalties in cash for your mistakes. You also only have two money wire transfers available.)

2. Your Internship
Now that we have a hotel room, let's go check out the internship research sight! (Since that's also the point of your stay) 
Use your map and go to the Pinewolf Research Facility.Go to the Lobby, then go to the Professor's office. 
Search the professor's desk and take his GPS System. Search the professor's laptop, you'll see that he's on the field.
You can take the buggy to find him. Go back to the lobby and then entrance of the facility outside.
Go to the garage.
You can't drive the buggy unless you have the keys to do so. Go back inside the facility and use the bathroom.
Look at the counter in the bathroom and take the golf cart keys.
Go back to the buggy area and use the buggy.
You need to use the GPS in your inventory in order to figure out where the professor is located.
You will be taken to an alternative map of the island.
For now, only one location should be available: The Jungle Testing Area.Talk to Professor Dashwood and ask "About the Class".
Ask what your assignments for the class are. 
Professor Dashwood will give you a lab access keycard.This will let you use other areas of the lab for your research. 
Leave the professor and go back to the Lobby of the lab.
Now that you have the access key card, all the areas should be open for you to visit. 
Go to your office and log on to the computer. Here you can view files about your assignment as well as how to perform research operations. 
Log off the computer and go to the tropical green house.
Study the plants. You should get a leaf test tube. 
Go to the lab and analyze your samples.
Use the leaf test tube on the analyze screen. Take the lab results folder.
Go back to the lobby and then your office to log on to the computer. 
Document your research on the computer and provide the folder item as a result. 
Your breakthrough level will be increased to 5. (You will need to go to the green house and study plants one more time to unlock the first story quest: The Mysterious Hunger Fungus)

3. The Mysterious Hunger Fungus
First, go on your computer and make sure that you go to your breakthrough expedition list.
Read what Professor Dashwood has to say about the issue.
Apparently a research assistant named Ashley is in trouble. 
Use the buggy and go to the Microbiology Testing Area. Ashley will be there.
You will need to chat with Ashley to get to know her before she'll tell you what the problem is. (Level 3 Relationship Required)
Ask Ashley "If everything is okay." Ashley will tell you that she's been infected by the hunger fungus.
The only way to cure her is to find a herbal medication to counteract the effects.
She will give you a sample of the fungus to present to people around the island.
Go to your map and travel to the Market Square. You will need to go to the Shopping District.
Go to the VooDoo Lady, Mirtilla, and her shop, to speak to her. 
Show her the hunger fungus sample.
She will know exactly what it is and give you a grocery list of items to find. (Hot massage stone, fruit blast drink, dung beetle)  (Note: Some of these items require other locked locations to be open. So we are going to jump around and then come back to this quest)

3.1 Getting the Hot Massage Stone, Fruit Blast Drink, and a Job
In order to get a hot massage stone, you need to buy a spa pass at the lobby of the hotel.
Passes aren't cheap either, costing about $500 a pass.
Lucky for you, you can get jobs at the resort.
Go to the Tiki Bar and speak with the bartender.
Ask if they are hiring. He will tell you that a position for a bartender is available. Take the job as well as the bartending uniform. 
(In order to work a shift, talk to the bartender and present the uniform to him)
Work a shift and collect your paycheck.
You will be taken to an employee discounts store where you can buy items at about half their price.
You can buy the Fruit Blast drink here for a really good discount! 
Buy the fruit blast and put it in your inventory. (You can only have one fruit blast drink at a time so DO NOT drink it.)
The bartending job can make you some good money while you are beginning the game, especially when you can't afford food or drinks otherwise.
If you want, you can also get the lifeguard job as well. This will pay more money than the bartender.

3.2 Getting the Lifeguard Job
Go to the lobby of the hotel and talk to Jane.
Chat with Jane and ask her if she works at the resort.
She will deny it at first and then tell you that she does.
She will also tell you that she knows the head lifeguard, John, and can get him to give you a job at the resort if you want to make more money.
Chat with Jane until your relationship is 5 and convince her.
Jane will give in and give you a pool access key card. 
Use the map and go to the pool. Use the key card immediately after.
You will be taken to the employees only area. John will be in there. 
Talk to John and tell him that you want to be a lifeguard.
He will get doubtful and will want to see your skills physically. (Level 5 body)
Go back to the pool area's workout facility.
You can workout here for the cost of energy.
Get your body skill to 5 and go back to John. 
John will then want to know how eager you are to be a lifeguard. (Relationship 8 required)
Keep talking to John until he sees how eager you are. 
John will agree to let you try applying.
You'll then need $200 for a licensing fee. 
Work shifts at the bartending job to raise money for the fee.
Once you have the money, give it to John.John will make you an offer to be a lifeguard.
It pays $100 per shit! Woohoo! (Note: Your old job inventory items will be removed and you won't have access to employee discounts at the old one, so make sure you want the job before you do that.)
John will give you a lifeguard buoy to use when you are working a shift.
You can work a shift at the pool area by using the buoy.
New employee discounts include the pool burger combo, yoga mat, or inner tube!If you want to save yourself some time for a later quest, you can take the char-grilled pool burger.

3.3 Getting the Spa Stone
Go to the main lobby and speak with the front desk. 
Tell them that you want to "See the Hotel Features"Purchase the Spa key card and go to the pool area.

There are several room wings that you can choose from. 
Center Wing: Has the large keyhole
West Wing: Has a wall of hieroglyphs. Use the pick axe to take out a chunk.
The Voodoo man is the only person on the island that can translate glyphs for you.
He will want $500 for the trouble. Get the money and have him translate it.
The Voodoo man will give you golden rocks that you can use at the temple.
He doesn't know what they are for though.
Take the rocks and go back to the temple.
Go to the East Wing: You have two options here. You can use the pouch of marbles or the golden rocks. 
The pouch of marbles is the cost effective way if you don't want to pay the voodoo man.
The golden rocks is the story way if you want to follow the story.
 Either way, you get the key!
Go back to the Center Wing. 
Use the key on the door and get the Pinewolf Medallion! You will also get $300 and 30 research points.
